The image quality seems quite variable and there is a very shallow depth of field. The lens box and the lotus flower are the best because they are in the same focal plane and are relatively unaffected by the shallow depth of field.

1/300sec 7.1 (picture1) isn't optimal. Better: longer time, smaller aperture!
Try SuperMacro without lens :-) - you will get better results.

My Canon SX1 makes SuperMacro till 0.00cm from front lens.

Using a macrolens, shallow DOF is inevitable; Sometimes a macrolens is the only answer to not get a bee pissed you're sticking a 58mm lens up it's butt Well, when using macrolenses, the #1 condition is to have the subjects eyes in focus. If that condition is not met, the image failed. (wisdom I learned years back at this site )
The shallow dof can in fact be quite helpfull to get rid of busy backgrounds.

Here's a little creature I captured using a Hoya +4 macrolens. The filter thread is 55mm, so i used the stepdownring. I suspect some softness was caused by that. Resized + sharpened; last is a 100% crop of 2nd; no further edting.

Happy shooting! GB

Thanks GB.

You get my point as the object is very small just 3mm height x 18mm long.
Without macro lens, I have no ideal at all. So, have to sacrifice DOF.
For your information, the photo's are without any modification just resized to 640x480.
I don't like to spend to much time with photoshop or another word "original is always the best"

Another night shot with flash resized to 640x480 no post process.

I gave the SX1 a thought a year ago - but decided to wait for something better (the HS10 maybe?) - what do you think about the Canon - noise, HD capabilities ? Claus

I hope to get HS10 in next time - SX1 I have since 2008 ... it's a VERY good camera, photo & video. No wishes - it's "perfect" ... look my pictures in Canon section - page 1 to page 15
